Postdoc Dena Izadi has won a grant from MSU's Broad Art Lab for her project "The Schrodinger’s Cat is in Town!"

My proposal for a project called ‘The Schrodinger’s Cat is in Town!’ is accepted. We aim to use ‘Schrodinger’s Cat’ as a popular scientific character to publicize our event and attract the public with little or no exposure to the ‘black box of physics’.
I will organize a series of 2-hour public workshops that brings together physicists, artists and the public in a venue that physics phenomena can be communicated through art. The activities will take place in several groups and the best work is selected by the public. At the end of the session, participants will engage in an open discussion of how art can act as a powerful medium to visualize science, or, perhaps even create a new landscape merging both art and science.
